Magic Hat Stealin’ Time 2.9  
Poured light gold with a thin head. Slightly sweet citrus aroma. Taste is orange/lemon. Ginger not apparent.

Dark Horse Smells Like A Safety Meeting IPA 4.1  
Dark Horse Brewing Company Marshall, Michigan
12 oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours with a clear copper colored body topped by a modest size bone colored head that has excellent retention. Indeed, it smells. No idea why this would be like a safety meeting. To me it suggests fresh citrus juice, some baked bread and dank hops. The flavor largely follows, but with more malt presence, medium bitterness rather than being sweet, and a lower ABV than the aroma suggests. Overall: excellent DIPA.

Anderson Valley Highway 128 The Kimmie, The Yink, and the Holy Gose 3.3  
Anderson Valley Brewing Company Boonville, California
Shared with wim at his home. Clear blond colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Hoppy fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is quite sour.

Urban Chestnut Ku’damm Bock 3.4  
Urban Chestnut Brewing Company St. Louis, Missouri
On tap at El Bait Shop Golden yellow appearance with slight haze and a white head. Aroma of lacto funk, lemon zest, wheat and grains. Similar flavor, tart and zesty with medium body and a grainy finish. Not bad.

Flying Dog St.EADman Abbey Ale 3.6  
Flying Dog Brewery Frederick, Maryland
Bottle->tulip. Deep reddish brown with small lite tan head. Nose has dark fruit, ash, molasses, caramel malt, licorice, hint of over-ripe banana. Taste is spice forward, with cloves and allspice, then bittersweet toffee malt and some fig kick in. Belgian yeast floats throughout. Pretty good.

Revival You Thirsty? IPA 3.3  
Revival Brewing Company Providence, Rhode Island
Tall can from W&M Mansfield. Dated 5-9-17. Pours out cloudy medium burnt orange color. Frothy off-white head. Fruity-herbal-spice aromas. Slightly earthy and malty. Hints of citrus. Somewhat muddled though.

Schell Noble Star - Tidal Disruption Berliner Weisse 3.5  
August Schell Brewing Company New Ulm, Minnesota
On tap at El Bait Shop. Hazy purple appearance with a pink head. Aroma of tart berries, mild wheat and light lacto funk. Similar flavor, fruity, light, tart and refreshing. A nice Berliner overall, plenty of flavor for 3.5%.

Old Nation M-43 2.9  
Old Nation Brewing Company Williamston, Michigan
16oz can- Lots of foamy head. Great hops with tons of citrusy, grassy hops. Very cloudy straw color (like light cloudy orange juice). Slight sour beginning with cereal sweetness.

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter 3.8  
Maui Brewing Company Kihei, Maui, Hawaii
12 oz can. $4.00/ can? Pours pitch black with dark ruby highlights and a beige head with very hood retention. Good lacing. Strong coconut nose. Taste is a good mix of coconut and dark charred malts and a touch of coffee. Not too sweet. Smooth, creamy and flat mouthfeel. Would be better without coffee notes.

Central City / Quidi Vidi Hop To The East 3.0  
Central City Brewers + Distillers Surrey, British Columbia
330 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Across the Nation Collaboration East mix pack). Pours a clearish deep golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is wheat, tropical fruit, light banana and clove. Flavour is banana-ish fruitiness, pineapple, light clove and wheat. A little watery. Ok.

TailGate Watermelon Wheat 3.0  
TailGate Beer Nashville, Tennessee
Bottle from Wild & Lees. Clear slightly Amber golden beer with a white foam head. Nose is watermelon, floral, toasted grains, toffee. Taste is lager yeast, acidic, watermelon, toasted grains. Bit acidic on palette.

Beryl’s Yöur Gaarden 3.5  
Beryl’s Beer Company Denver, Colorado
Rating number 9,400 for no reason. Bright hazy straw hue with a thin ring of white head. Slightly coriander-y white wheaty nose that’s fluffy and inviting. Crisp dry flavor that’s full of white wheat and a slightly peppery coriander tone with a smooth kiss of orange peel bitterness. Calm but cool.

New Glarus Spotted Cow 3.3  
New Glarus Brewing Company New Glarus, Wisconsin
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Golden, light hazy appearance with a white head. Aroma of toasted malt, mild fruity esters and light hoppy notes. Similar flavor, smooth and creamy with a light to medium body and a pleasant finish. A nice, easy drinker overall.

Ex Novo Eliot IPA 3.2  
Ex Novo Brewing Company Portland, Oregon
On tap at Facebook in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is rubber, burnt rubber, dank nugs. Taste is earthy, dank wetness, slightly bitter. A bit heavy on the burning rubber tree forest for me.

Flying Dog Summer Rental 2.3  
Flying Dog Brewery Frederick, Maryland
Lemon, plastic, elmer’s glue smell. Clear yellow, medium head, good lace. Strong malt, yeast, lemon accents, some fusel notes. Light body, moderate carbonation. More beery than most radlers, but there are issues with the base beer.
